Ascent Trip Report

Have been driving past this mountain for years, and thinking I need to make a trip up. Had a bunch of extra time after a business trip to Twin Falls, so I told my coworker that we were going for it. Was able to drive to the gate through some remaining snow on the road and cut out a few down trees on the road. Climbed straight up the eastern ridge since most of the road was covered in snow. Great views on a very clear day, and an even more fun glissade back down to the truck.
